AMD EPYCTM 7000 Series Processors: Leading Performance for the Cloud Era


Datacenters have rapidly evolved, with software innovation greatly surpassing the ability of hardware technology to e ciently support it. The Internet of Things, the Cloud, and an ever increasing mobile workforce have transformed datacenters of all sizes to become service providers, providing intelligible data on demand in a secure manner.

Over the past decade, there have been major advances within the software ecosystem, while the x86 server CPU has seen only incremental and comparatively nominal improvements, leaving the modern datacenter constrained and starved for innovation. This new era of computing demands a new breed of processor, one with the power to e ciently support the workloads of today’s software-de ned datacenter while providing protection from the silicon level up against sophisticated threats. 

To achieve optimized performance for today’s datacenter applications, a processor that delivers more performance,  exibility, and security through a better balance of resources is essential. AMD o ers the innovation required for the cloud-era datacenter with AMD EPYC—a system on chip (SoC) that is designed from the ground up to deliver real innovation to e ciently support the needs of existing and future datacenters.


The modern datacenter needs more cores, more memory, more I/O, and more security. AMD EPYC powers the datacenter with 32 cores, 64 threads, 8 memory channels with up to 2 TB of memory per socket, and
128 PCIe-3 lanes coupled with the industry’s  rst hardware-embedded x86 server security solution. With servers built on EPYC technology, cloud environments can drive greater scale and performance, virtualized datacenters can further increase consolidation ratios while delivering better performing virtual machines and Big Data, and analytics environments can collect and analyze larger data sets much faster. High performance applications in research labs can solve complex problem sets in a signi cantly accelerated manner. EPYC, with all the critical compute, memory, I/O, and security resources brought together in the SoC with the right ratios, delivers industry-leading performance and enables lower TCO.


AMD EPYC provides breakthrough processing power balanced with the industry-leading memory and I/O capacity needed to substantially eliminate performance bottlenecks. With the  exibility to choose from 8
to 32 cores, EPYC enables you to deploy the right hardware platforms to meet your workload needs from virtualized infrastructure to large-scale big-data and analytics platforms and legacy line-of-business applications. You can rightsize your infrastructure using EPYC with fewer cores without sacri cing memory capacity or I/O. EPYC provides the memory capacity and bandwidth to processor cores to e ciently run memory-intensive workloads. With EPYC you can leverage industry-leading I/O bandwidth that matches the capability of the CPU cores to move data to and from the network while supporting I/O-intensive workloads. EPYC, with a balanced set of resources, o ers you an unprecedented opportunity to rightsize your datacenter infrastructure for enhanced performance and cost e ciency. 



Today, the vast majority of servers populating the datacenter are two- socket servers, and the majority of these servers are greatly underutilized. Datacenters are full of expensive underutilized two-socket servers purchased for the additional memory, I/O, or enterprise management features not available in single-socket servers. EPYC processor-based no-compromise single-socket servers with up to 32 multithreaded cores,
8 memory channels o ering up to 2 TB of RAM, 128 PCIe-3 lanes, and the industry’s  rst hardware-embedded x86 server security solution can meet the needs of your applications by enabling better resource utilization and greater  exibility. AMD EPYC processor-based no-compromise single-socket servers with a better balance of resources enable you to e ciently run many former two-socket-server workloads and provide real-world performance gains while enabling lower total cost of ownership.


Securing data and software has never been more challenging or more important. As attack surfaces increase, companies of all sizes struggle to protect themselves and their customers. A sound security strategy does not end at a  rewall. Companies of all sizes face increasing risks of hacking that lead to data theft, ransomware, and other forms of exploitation. Security threats have become more complex as the number of attack vectors increase among more and more attack surfaces—both external and internal. AMD EPYC processor-based servers shield the datacenter from external and internal threats, helping keep software and data safe while booting, running, and moving from server to server. The AMD Secure Root-of-Trust technology, with a secure root of trust, ensures that only cryptographically signed software is booted, depending on your server vendor’s implementation. AMD Secure Run Technology encrypts all software and data in memory, guarding against unauthorized snooping and cold boot attacks while supporting secure VM isolation. AMD Secure Move technology also enables secure migration of virtual machines and containers between EPYC processor-based servers. AMD EPYC, with the industry’s  rst hardware- embedded x86 server security solution, provides unprecedented security for your datacenter software and data, keeping them safe while booting, running, and moving between EPYC processor-powered servers.

AMD EPYC can help you better match your datacenter resources to your workloads with a system on chip that delivers more performance,  exibility, and security through a better balance of resources at a lower TCO.
